Guide to artisans, food and drink vendors at Calgary's Prairie Grid Market

Here's what to expect at our pop-up market in Calgary this fall

As things are looking a little different for virtually everything that's happening in the Canadian food and drink scene these days, our Prairie Grid Dinner Series is no exception. Morphing from a large-scale pop-up dinner experience to a unique marketplace is allowing us to keep our "proud to be prairie" mantra alive while offering up Prairie-made food, drink, art, music and more in an atmosphere that feels safe for everyone.

From a one-of-a-kind ice cream created by Made By Marcus and a build-your-own-cocktail kit booth brought to life by Cannibale, to interesting spirits, beer, and ceramics, here are all of the interesting vendors you'll find find at the Prairie Grid Market pop-up in Calgary at Carter Cadillac on Sept. 26 and 27.
